I spend a fair bit of my spare time immersed in the world of street art and graffiti art and even when I am on holiday, the antennae are out and working overtime. On a recent family holiday to Cornwall, we had opted for an Indian takeaway one evening, rather than cook (in holiday mode). Before I picked up the food, I thought I’d do a quick Google Maps search of the streets in Liskeard to get my bearings. As luck would have it, the building opposite the takeaway had several rather nice pieces painted on it (not a common sight anywhere in Cornwall), all of them by an artist called Stuart H Taylor.
This stunning piece was one of the murals, with more to come soon, and rather blew my socks off. I think that his work is brush painted rather than using spray cans, but Stuart H Taylor has created a very clever stencil effect using shades and tones that make this really stand out. The reflected scene in the sunglasses is not a new idea, but has been very well executed and one is left pondering what is going on. What a bonus to find this piece and more on holiday, feeding my habit.
